Recent Reference Question

Every month a newsletter is published about interesting reference questions. Here's an entry from December:

A customer thought she had seen a PBS documentary about young male elephants that were attacking white rhinos in Africa. She said it was discovered they were "juvenile delinquents" whose parents had been poached and now had no role model. She wanted to purchase or rent a video of the program to use for domestic violence classes. We found a 60 Minutes segment about such rogue elephants that attributed the behavior to an excess of testosterone that was resolved by importing larger males to reduce the sexual activity, therefore the hormones. The customer confirmed this was the show and was given information on ordering tapes for 60 Minutes programs.
